Saturday night and I have not much to say!!

Saturday, October 25, 2008
I just thought I'd stop by and say hello. I LOVED the movie "Eagle Eye." It was so suspenseful! I would highly recommend seeing it.
I've been working all day on these little booklets we're going to have for each person attending the fundraiser. It is going to be filled with stories of people with PH. I've got 24 different stories. I have young women, older women (like myself), a couple of kids and a couple of guys! It's been really interesting reading these stories of these amazing people. It's also been a bit tricky editing the stories so I could get them to fit on a piece of 3 1/2 X 5 inch piece of paper! I also have a picture to go with each story.

Our numbers are looking a bit better. But, I've decided it really doesn't matter. I'm going to be happy with whatever we get.

There was a little write-up in last nights paper:


Fundraiser set for lung disease

Nebraska first lady Sally Ganem will serve as honorary chairwoman at the third annual Phenomenal Hope for a Cure fundraiser, Nov. 1 at DC Centre West, 11830 Stonegate Drive.

The 10 a.m. event aims to raise awareness of — and funds for fighting — the sometimes fatal lung disease pulmonary hypertension.

A silent auction will kick off the event. A brunch and a program will begin at 11 a.m.

Col. Carl Hicks, chairman of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association's board of trustees and vice president of advocacy for the association, will speak at the event.

Pulmonary hypertension is a complex health problem of the lungs that causes continuous high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery in the lungs. That results in an enlarged heart.

Tickets are $30. For more information, call Kathie Starkweather at 617-7946.

Ok, that's enough computer time for one day! I think my eyeballs are going to jump out of my head if I don't give them a rest!

Sorry, that was really kind of gross!

Thanks for reading.

The PH fundraiser was fantastic! You looked fantastic both on the news and in person. It was great to see you doing so well. Shari always keeps me updated on your progress. As you know, I am also home due to my leg, so if you ever want to go to lunch or knit let me know.
Take care,
